I don't believe the starbase needed anything from the Precursor ship to create fuel. The starbase's purpose was to make fuel.

Quote
Ur-Quan slave law requires that we maintain an orbital space platform
to assist Hierarchy vessels which are in need of repairs or fuel.


And it wasn't different fuel from what they use for Hierarchy ships, because...

Quote
We do have a small amount of Starship fuel which is of no use to our power systems.
We will now transport 5 units to your vessel.
This should be sufficient for a trip to the surface of Mercury.

Yes, but it might be that the base produces it very slowly, so that they would only have, say, 100 fuel on hand (well, ok that's 2K RUs, not bad...). Note that I bet that even a Dreadnought gets better gas mileage than the Precursor ship, so that would go quite a ways...

Is it just me, or were those 500 Syreen males among the 10,000 people still left in their species really lucky?  I mean, imagine...  the only hope for the survival of your race is to make as many babies with as many women as you possibly can.  This is an endeavour I would gladly volunteer to take part in.


Syreen ain't exactly the showfixti though.  While the little primitive may be quite happy to use repopulation as an excuse for a carnal rampage, the syreen may not be so willing to go for an apocalyptic orgy.  "Making babies with as many women as you possibly can" may mean "Having your testicles removed so we can distribute the semen more effectively".

Killing the goose that lays the golden eggs isn't going to help... you want those testes intact.

Hey, if I have to make that sacrifice to be with thousands of beautiful Syreen, I will!  By the way, what's wrong with an apocolyptic orgy?  Nothing!  Well, except maybe a lack of futon space...

Well, the wrod apocalyptic in itself worries me a bit. Is this an orgy of some sort of biblical proportions, or simply the last orgy before the apocalypse? Either way, I'd rather you did not. After all, a Fot may have just a wee bit of trouble with all those Syreen. A sleek Androsynth however.... Except of course, I'm a ship. Doh.

Well, if the syreen believe in complete fidelity in marrage, then those 500 males would have married 500 females, the rest would have built society. Now, those 500 breeder couples would have made lotsa babies, and they re-marry, and have lotsa babies, and by then the 9,500 syreen females would have all gone into retirement. However,  9,500 females building a society would make for a very matricharcial society. Hense, even tho by this generation the population, male to female, would have more evened out, the fact is that it's still a female run society. The men probably stay at homes, raise the children, and get the lower pay scale. And while a syreen pilot or captian may not be unheard of, they're breaking into a job market that was dominated by females. They'd be way rare.
I think that's the point I was getting at.

I don't even wanna think about an old Syreen.  Aren't they beautiful their whole lives?  You're ruining that perfect, uptopian, blue image in my head!  By the way, do you think a female Syreen designed the Penetrator?  I think it would have to be a male Syreen, for obvious reasons... either that or the women drew from memory.

There ARE 500 male Syreen that can be used as models, you know.

Ribbed for her pleasure...heh....

Can't argue with a ship with as powerful a name as 'Penetrator'...

Is it just me or does Primat have trouble letting the pharse "ribbed for pleasure" go?  Cheesy

Old syreen look just like young syreen, seeing as one fo their colony ships used to be a plastic surgery de luxe store, before they got it off Syra, minutes before the explosion.

Maybe they're just drop dead gorgous untill they hit 80 and then the ugly tree falls on them. Kinda like the chinese women. No serious. I spent 2 years in asia and I've only seen 2 kinds of chinese women. Younge and beautiful and ancient old aunties. I mean it's like one day their husband must roll over in bed and say "Uh! I expected her to catch up with me one day, but I didn't expect her to get so far ahead!"
Of course by then, the Syreen aunties wouldn't be politing ships or captaning bases. They may not even survive the instant aging process. Talnya was nowhere in site in that last animation on SC2.

Hey that's how I want to go.
Stay young looking my entire life, and then when I'm 60 let it all catch up with me--- and also die the same day.

Luki: Yeah, I know. I'm just feeling particularly frustrated (yes in that sense) lately.

The thought occurs to me that maybe ALL syreen are actually ugly, but thanks to their psychic powers, you'll never see what they really look like.  Kinda like a beer-goggle emitter ray, built in.
